We've Been Named a Four-Star Charity..Again!
We're proud to announce that we've once again earned a four-star rating (out of a possible four stars) from Charity Navigator, the nation's largest independent evaluator of non-profit organizations. Fewer than 6% of non-profits receive this four star designation for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. This is our fourth consecutive year of receiving this award and demonstrates our commitment to sound governance and best practices for ethical operations in a fiscally responsible way. We're very proud of this distinction, and we're grateful to the many donors and supporters who value our work in the community. You can read the (PDF) letter here»
